Our study predicts the anticipated length of the current drought based on streamflow statistical properties of 1,100 years of streamflows inferred from tree ring data and 120 years of gauged riverflow measurements.
Likewise, people living in valleys and active river channels were advised to remain vigilant against sediment-laden streamflows and lahars in the event of prolonged and heavy rainfall.
There is growing interest in flooding fields during the winter with surplus surface water to recharge underlying groundwater basins; to make this happen, farmers first need to understand the physical distribution and occurrence of excess surface water, particularly the most promising source -- high-magnitude streamflows.
As an illustration and motivation for the use of the proposed models, we first consider as a first example, a data set consisting of the time series of monthly averages of natural streamflows, measured in the year period ranging from 1931 to 2010, in Furnas hydroelectric dam, located in southeastern Brazil.
'Furthermore, people living in valleys and active river channels are cautioned to remain vigilant against sediment-laden streamflows and lahars (mud flow) in the event of prolonged and heavy rainfall,' they added.
Eminent environmental lawyer Sardar Aasif Sial while stressing the need for climate justice said that climate change had directly been affecting the hydrologic cycle and thus the quality, quantity, and timing of streamflows. He said that climate change was shifting forests borders and was having a negative impact on livelihoods and biodiversity.
Heavy rainfall in the past two days generated lahar along the Binaan Channel and sediment-laden streamflows in river channels.
'The public is strongly advised to be vigilant and desist from entering the 8-kilometer-radius danger zone, and to be additionally vigilant against pyroclastic density currents, lahars and sediment-laden streamflows along channels draining the edifice.'
The natural water availability in a water basin is represented by the average and minimum streamflows, and knowing them is of great importance for an adequate planning of usage and shared management of the water resources (Novaes et al., 2009).
At the first of April, everything looked great for irrigators, fish and wildlife managers and others who monitor and care about streamflows and reservoir levels.
The monthly averages of minimum Qmin, mean Qm and maximum Qmax streamflows were derived from the daily mean streamflows.
